4th August 2013: Finished spear Just have a few kinks to work out, and some final details to add, but this bad boy is finally done! 8D
31st July 2013: Spear progress Finished making the spear and adding all the base details. I paper maché'd over the entire thing because I'm too stingy to buy primer, and because the spray paint I have isn't fond of sticking straight onto plastic. Although it took quite a lot of extra time, this way I get a more even surface over the entire spear, which is great.
Hopefully the weather will allow me to spray paint it and start adding all the other details later on in the week, but until then I'm focusing on painting the scroll designs onto Fang's saris.
14th May 2013: Hair~ Just a quick journal to show the progress of my hair. I'll need to straighten it a little on the day, since my natural hair is way to curly for Fang, but I'm pretty happy with the progress. A friend has agreed to colour the tips for me, and I'm still a few more hair cuts away from everything being the way I want it (I'd like it a little shorter on the top, methinks), but I'm pretty pleased with it all 8D
25th April 2013: Fabric This costume is going to be my priority once May expo is over. Even though there's several months between then and Aya, I also have Altaïr to compete with, so Fang and the 24-ish metres of fabric that I have to hand paint are going to take up the majority of my time.
Really happy with the fabric I have, especially considering I didn't have a sample to compare to when I bought the light blue. They're both a lot bluer in real life, but my camera didn't seem to want to take a decent picture xD
